A Little Unexpected...

"Why I live at the P. O." by Eudora Welty. Inspired by a photo she took of a woman ironing in back of the post office.  Photos by Welty.

Quotes by Eudora Welty:

"A great snapshot keeps a moment from running away."

"We are the breakers of our own hearts."

"It doesn't matter if it takes a long time getting there; the point is to have a destination."

"The excursion is the same when you go looking for your sorrow and when you go looking for your joy."

"Never think you've seen the last of anything."

Genetics may influence why we are liberal or conservative in politics.
